- Attach birthday sparklers

What's new in version 3?
- More series of holes for sparklers (You can loop them, but I prefer to simply insert them through the hole and then fit them in an elastic band)
- zip-tie locks on the side (easier way to pop in and out feathers on a zip-tie)
- zip-tie loops on the outside (closed)
- tighter zip-tip slots
- inserts for bigger sparklers on the side (morning glory, ice fountains...)
- double pass-through hole (half-cap) - this idea came from the holographic feather series which made us want to have light from both sides of the attachment.
- comes in 2 colors (black, glow), 2 models (half, full)
(8 units package includes twice the caps listed above)
- Half-caps: let's half of the light pass through to light up feathers or pipe cleaners. Includes slots for a zip tie and sparklers. Sample: https://www.instagram.com/p/BlxvU5QnLJ9/
- Full-caps: bounces back the light to have maximum brightness at the tip of the tube
- Glow caps: super reflective. Best option to bounce back the light in the tube. Sample: https://www.instagram.com/p/BphofLijXlL/ . These are also amazing to bounce the light on your subject and on the foreground. Sample: https://www.instagram.com/p/BVzyUSvgckF/
- Black caps: less reflection which avoid having an extra line on top of the tube. Sample: https://www.instagram.com/p/BpBTZ0zn96U/. These are also great when you simply need to block the light to avoid having lines on the floor or on the ceiling
- These caps are working with any of the tubes you can find on this online store
- Caps are not compatible with raw t8 tubes, but you can adapt your tubes by adding one or two slices of tape in the inner part of them.
